Agreed. You need to relate to wherever that person is in their life.
That is usually no more than 10 years older at my age, and rarely more than 3-4 years younger. I think as you get older, the age gap does close a bit though.

My husband is 17 years older than I and although he is the bread winner I am the mature one in the relationship he is a man-boy that why I fell in love with him. I think if he acted like a 40 year old that he is I would not be interested
